Buyers and sellers at the popular Oko-Oba abattoir in the Ifako-Ijaiye Local Government Area of Lagos State have been observed to flout COVID-19 guidelines.
When Newsbreak visited the market on Tuesday, hundreds of people were seen going about their activities without wearing nose masks or observing social distancing of any kind.
From the main gate to the main market, where beef and other meat are sold, people were seen doing business in clusters and in dirty places.
Our correspondent reports that the security personnel at the gate neither wore masks nor ensured visitors wore theirs.
The Amuwo Odofin Local Government last week shut four markets, Oyinlola and 23 Road markets in Festac Town, OpeOluwa market at Agboju and Arozo Market at Mile 2, for non-compliance with COVID-19 guidelines.
Markets were reopened as part of the gradual easing of lockdown in the country by the Federal Government in May with guidelines including wearing of face masks, keeping social distance and regular washing of hands.
